Blythe Academy Earns International Award!!!

Blythe Academy has been named International Spanish Academy Elementary School of the Year!

The award was formally presented on May 23, 2013 at the Spanish Embassy in Washington, D.C.  From left to right, Ambassador Ramon Gil-Casares, Dr. Griffin, and Xavier Gisbert da Cruz.

IMPORTANT:  Sign In Procedure Update
Effective immediately.....

It is now District policy that all visitors/volunteers/guests to our buildings must be signed in by an office person and must have either a visitor or volunteer badge displayed on their body in plain sight at all times.

As a reminder, visitors and guests must present photo ID.  Please be patient as there may be some delays in getting everyone checked in during peak times, especially first thing in the morning so you may want to consider arriving a few minutes early.

Thank you for your support as our school implements this new policy for the continued safety of our children, their teachers, the staff and volunteers at Blythe Academy.
Health Room Policy Changes
Beginning in August 2010 - Due to changes in South Carolina policies governing the administration of prescription medication, we will no longer have a 10 day grace period before written physician authorization is required for all prescription medications.
  • Parents are required to bring prescription medication to school and provide Form MED-1 before any prescription medication may be left at the school.
  • If your child must self-administer medication at school Form MED-2 is required before medication is brought to school.
  • A  parent may provide written authorization for over-the-counter medication to be kept and administered in the health room using Form MED-3.

All Health Services procedures and guidelines and these forms are available at http://www.greenville.k12.sc.us/gcsd/depts/stuserv/health.asp
